Mother Earth Brewing has announced their next artist-inspired brew to kick off the new year in their rotating Hazy IPA Project X Series: Idol Worshp.
Idol Worship takes cues from former brews in the series, erring on the side of west-coast inspired hazies.
“We’ve learned a lot over the last few years about striking the right balance in terms of flavor and appearance in these beers,” says Chris Baker, Director of Brewing Ops, Mother Earth Brew Co. “Upping the ABV allowed us to push the hops a bit harder while avoiding any unclean bitterness, and turning up the wheat gives us some extra body and haze without having to back-sweeten with lactose which can be common for the style.”
Mother Earth’s latest HIPA has all New Zealand and Australian Hops: Nelson Sauvin, Galaxy, and Vic Secret bring tropical fruit aroma and flavor that include passion fruit, mango, lychee, kiwi, and pineapple, the company says.
Idol Worship is available at Mother Earth’s Idaho tasting rooms in Boise and Nampa, and will roll out to distribution throughout January in 16-oz. cans and draft.
